Earth-Toned Goremaw-77579

Excellent!

 

Being a massive fan of the cheesy 90's B-movie 'Tremors', I have a soft spot for the giant worm miniatures.  I've got a few sat on my desk at home but have been struggling to settle on a colour scheme.  I actually really like your palette choice, the earth tones worked really well.

If you ever get to California, make a note that the Film Museum in Lone Pine [on HWY 395] has one of the Tremors beasties bursting through the floor in one of the exhibit rooms.

Lone Pine is near to the Alabama Hills which has been a location shooting area for film makers since the silent movie era due to the wide variety of terrain suitable for backdrops and action locations within a very small area.

The original Tremors was a well-budgeted, critically acclaimed movie that did well at the box office and was said to have 're-invigorated" the monster movie genre. It has legions of affectionate fans and has a script that is considered very well written by most screenwriters. It is now considered a classic. The sequels were cheesy B-movies. The same should not be said of the original.

 

The mini's awesome, though.

I love that colourscheme!

Walnut Brown is an awesome colour , one of my favorite browns as well.

 

As it happens I have this Desert Project going on, I happen to have some worms I think I now know how to paint them...

Thanks for the inspiration.

I really like the browns - very natural, earthy colors, which make it more creepy to me - nature turned monstrous - well shaded too - love the teeth

      I painted Goremaw the Great Worm up as a fire-infused purple worm for a unique creature from the Pathfinder setting of Galorion.  I am running the Curse of the Crimson Throne AP in D&D 3.5, and this creature will show up in my game tonight.  It is my first finished creature miniature (I have done some terrain previously), and being a perfectionist, I put in 48 hours of work on him (lots of nooks and crannies, and I don't have an airbrush).
       
      I finished him last night, reaching the "good enough" state, as time didn't allow me to put off varnishing him any further.
       
      I started posting a WIP thread when I started working on him several months ago.  Check it out HERE.
       
      Here are my Cindermaw glamor shots.

      Howdy,
       
      Here is my take...
       


       
      It has an amethyst sheen that is not pronounced in these pics,

      Goremaw, the great purple worm, I made lots of mistakes while painting this mini. I had to go back and correct a lot of over painting. Tried to use Army painter paints, didn’t care for them. Constructive criticism is welcome. Sticking to Reaper paint from now on.

      Will be using these in an upcoming game so these are tabletop quality.
       
      Been waiting to paint my Goremaw as it seems just to be such an awesome monster to instill fear into players over my other Purple Worms I have in my collection from the DDM line.
       
      With the Wolf Demon, I tried to have it be more dynamic with the feet causing the ground to heat up.  First time trying something like that with a heat effect; I think it worked ok.  I know the shading and drybrushing could be better on him, but I had about 1 night to paint him before I need to use him.
       
      I haven't edited anything in Photoshop to make it look pretty.  Sorry.  :P
